That sounds easy enough. I actually have a pottery kiln that will take the steel to non-magnetic. I simply heat and then let cool? Does this need to be done more than once and is there a particular "soak" time at non-magnetic?
Thanks for the help!
If you can program your kiln.
Ramp to 1500 ... 10 min Hold
Cool to 1450 ... 10 min hold
Cool to 1400 ... 10 min hold
Cool to 1350 ... 10 min hold
Cool to 1300 ... 10 min hold
Cool to 1250 ... 10 min hold
Cool to 1200 ... 10 min hold
Let cool in to room temp over night in oven
If you can't program your kiln; anneal it in vermiculite or ash. Get the blade to temp and let soak in vermiculite or ash 24 hours. It's also good to preheat vermiculite or ash buy inserting a buddy steel along with it. If I'm only doing one piece of steel I place another piece of steel in the material that is around 1500 degrees or more, so that when you put the piece you want to anneal doesn't cool too fast.
Others might have a better way but this works for me. I do this after forging and normalizing then I anneal.
